Pros Tons of pop, super playfulFantastic all-around board, great in powderUnmatched pop, great edge hold, supremely stableGreat stability, tons of floatGreat value, supremely stable at high speeds
Cons Doesn’t have the best edge hold, could be more stableNot the best beginner boardNot the best board for powderSecond-rate pop, so-so playfulnessNot as much pop as other boards
Bottom Line The Swoon is a super fun playful board but it lacks the stiffness if you really want to send itThis is one of our absolute favorite all-mountain boardsEarning one of the top scores we have seen to date, we highly recommend this boardThis stiffer big mountain board is great for carving or for anyone who likes to scream down groomersIf you want a top-notch all-mountain board without paying a premium price, the Klassy is the one for you
